I love them !
I used them both with stock passive filter and active filter; one can change rapidly with speakon (added) connectors.
In the active configuration it is a Behringer DEQ+DCX2496 (dac & op amp modified) attacked by Citation 21+24 & vintage Marantz quadra 4400 (medium & high). The only improvement is update the tweeter with 2x2 Fostex FT96H (wired in series with 2x47R in //) they are spaced with 45° angle.
After all these years (we are in 2014) the rubber suspension & cone are in perfect condition; the glasswool is damped; the stock tweeter are still ok. The low section wiring is not as latest design for section but compared to the coil resistance, it is neglicteble.
